Early morning is the major time for Explosions!
No more nasty Gas to depend on
A crater opened up after the explosion.
Cars were incinerated.
Look! Beside the crater, tree bushes are OK (red line). But fire reached so far to the houses where the low vibration people were living.
Again, just like some other (wild?)fires, all the trees are intact. Flame was projected the targeted direction.
